Bunmi Adedayo Foundation Launched 1K4Change- A Crowd Funding Campaign in Lagos. In a release signed by the Foundation’s Communications Officer Abraham Onoja, the campaign is aimed at raising funds from the general public to pursue the Foundation’s vision of transforming the educational landscape in Public Primary Schools. With an emphasis on helping children from indigent background, the foundation employs a holistic and transformational approach in improving the learning outcomes by meeting all the requirements for quality education in its adopted schools. Since inception in January 2016, the foundation has adopted five (5) schools, two of these schools have been completely transformed through our bouquet of programmes and interventions which include; Continuous Professional Development for Teachers, Remodelling and Renovation of School Buildings, Library, Class Room Furniture’s, Sports facilities and ICT Lab. Through BAF intervention, these two schools have now become one of the best Public Primary Schools in Lagos State.
In line with our model, this campaign is aimed at sourcing for funds to implement identified projects at the three remaining schools, namely; Ire Akari Primary school, Isolo, Ebenezer Primary School, Egbeda and Community Primary School, Lakowe in Lagos State.
The campaigns goal is to raise #1000 from 100,000 people. According to the Chairman Board of Directors of the Foundation, Mr Babatunde Akinleye, the campaign would provide the general public with an opportunity to ‘DO GOOD’ in little ways that do not hurt their pocket. For ease of donation, the campaign has adopted multiple donation channels like the online payment portal at www.1k4change.org, direct bank transfer, USSD payment (40200006375*1000#) and Donation Boxes at all Tastee Fried Chicken (TFC) outlets.
